Legendary Nollywood actor, James Ikechukwu Esomugha known popularly as Jim Iyke has disclosed that he does not wallow himself in regrets.
During an interview on TV3’s Showbiz360 hosted by Giovanni Caleb, the Nigerian movie star said that he sees every mistake as an opportunity which one needs to learn from rather than dwelling in regrets which can weigh them down.
Jim Iyke shared a past experience as an example and gave reasons for not dwelling in his past. He disclosed that he does not have regrets as he shared an experience that happened five years.
“I don’t do regrets. 5 years ago, I took advantage of every mileage, every encounter and mistake, it can weigh you or it can make you comfortable and comfort is where dreams go and die truthfully.”
“I never allow myself to get comfortable, I never allow myself to wallow in regrets. They are only lessons, you pick it up, you better yourself, enhance who you are from those lessons and you will understand that God taught you life lessons to uplift yourself and to advance your course.”
“I see regrets as regressive and I wish I practiced this earlier. There were many milestones in my life where they caused so many regrets and I wish I had taken a better decision or treated someone better or didn’t allow myself to be gullible to an obvious situation but at the end of the day, that is the human angle. That is what I called balances”, he added.
